TCM Clinic AidHD app review: a reference guide for Traditional Chinese Medicine 2021



This a powerful and comprehensive iPhone health app for practitioners and students of Traditional Chinese Medicine that has been intricately indexed, delving deeply into many areas of TCM including the diagnosis and treatment of conditions with various methods.

The best iPad apps for learning Chinese

I have to confess that the vast majority of the content offered up in this top health app for iPhone is pretty much lost on me as I have very little knowledge or understanding of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and I’ve always been a little skeptical about most applications of acupuncture and similar practices.

Having said that, I could tell from the very moment I first started up TCM Clinic AidHD that it was quite clearly developed with a keen eye and a passion for the subject matter. I would definitely recommend considering this health app if you’re looking to learn more about TCM.

Keep reading our TCM Clinic AidHD app review and let us know what you think of this offering.
